next issue is about energy, and we will start with ursala rozum. governor cuomo must to shut down indian point nuclear power point with supplies about a third of the electricity of new york city. do you support them in that effort? rozum: yes, i do support the governor to close indian point. i hope that he will take up a similar effort to eventually shut down the nuclear power plants along ontario. i think nuclear power, it's an energy source of the past. is expensive. it should not be relying on federal subsidies anymore. the national academy of sciences has said that any level of radiation from a nuclear power plant is dangerous to our health. so we need to be moving forward. the costs of nuclear power are socialized, and the health care costs that we have are people that are exposed to radiation. i do support, i support governor cuomo's efforts and to support a transition to renewable clean energy economy, and save economy that does not rely on fossil fuels or nuclear power. >> moderator: dan maffei, would you support what the governor wants to do by closing indian point? maffe
out a definitive and unambiguous energy policy. [laughter] this is, obviously, mr. speaker, an appropriate day to be considering this recommendation on energy after the last 20 -- it's good to see the business secretary down the bench, by the way. i'm sorry that growth committee that he's on is so unmemorable that he can't remember it. this is an appropriate day to be considering this recommendation. so his energy -- i'm rather enjoying this, mr. speaker. his energy secretary, his energy secretary says he's against wind farms and enough is enough. well, if -- >> order. order. let me just say the government back benches is very straightforward, they either calm down, or the session will be extended at whoever's inconvenience that may involve. let's just be very clear, incredibly straightforward. ed miliband. >> mr. speaker, the energy minister says he's against wind farms and enough is enough while his energy secretary is gung ho for them. who speaks for his government? >> well, today the jokes have been bad and the substance has been bad too. it's not a good day. i tell you
they are doing that consistently across the board whether it's an energy space, environmental space, ect.. it's our job as attorneys general to participate in that transaction is preserved. that's why we filed a lawsuit. we'll see where it heads. it's less about the tax breaks for those corporations. it's more about what responsibility and opportunity has been vested in the state by the affordable care act in preserving that as a stake holder. >> i'm lee parsely with outside lawyer protection for lawsuit reform. in texas, there's a number of statutes that allow attorney general to have multiple violations. for a company that has inadvertently vollied the statute multiple times, those penalties can be substantial. at least philosophically, we've become concerned with that. do y'all have similar statutes in your state? is that an issue that we ought to have on the radar for those of us who are supporting the business community and their concerns about litigation? >> i can take that. that's not an issue to my knowledge. i think it could be -- you got a great attorney general in texas, in my opin

but we have got to address the monetary crisis of global warming and transform our energy system from fossil fuel to an energy efficiency and i'm proud that in the state of vermont we have brought millions and millions of dollars into the state creating jobs on making the transformation. i am proud of working with senator leahy and the congressman and the governor. we've brought from washington over 400 million to help this state rebuild from hurricane irene to be the next two years the state is going to lead the nation because the federal support in terms of high-quality broadband coming to everybody in the state of vermont. we are making progress and clearly a lot more has to be done and i would very much appreciate the opportunity to continue my work in the senate. >> moderator: mr. moss of the peace and prosperity are the final candidate to speak tonight. stifel thank you. i do not have time to go over the ten bills to try to introduce. if you will elect me on november 6th, however, this contains all of my ideas and it is on-line web site, petermoss.org. i think the few that i've
the conference here energy and medicine affordable care act is be challenged is represented a dissegregation of providing the services. solar energy, we have a massive delivery system because of the paradigm that someone is going to control generations. whose toes are you stepping on when you're trying to disaggravated information delivery. >> there is nobody's toes who we step on. you have the stu us quo. in all the campaigns advancing change are going to be either funding or undermining the existing power structure and the question for for e us -- [inaudible] toment to change and move them back. we don't aim to be confrontational. we aim for building power, people [inaudible] changing things is always interest you're fighting. ly say one thing which is on the corporate side in particular. you end up seeing companies who great example around a campaign started from the virginia man ends up getting huge -- more than 200,000 people join. it's distributed. and it was revealed that some of the information was dubious. the general underlying idea of lack of good pay and harsh working conditions
and a constructive energy that's been inspiring to all of us. here are just two quick examples. by the end of the first week, student leaders organized a candle light vigil on the old main lawn to show support for the victims of child sexual abuse. thousands of penn state students and community members joined together in the stillness of a cold, dark night to remind others that at the core of the issue we faced, were children who were gravely harmed. the following week, graduate students laura and stuart, mobilized the penn state community with the goal of raising awareness and funds for combating child abuse. working with the tight time line right before the lions were to play their first football game in the aftermath of the tragedy, laura and stuart organized the first annual blowout to represent the color of ribbons shown in support of child abuse awareness. this year was the second annual blue-out. together, they raised $126,000 for prevent child abuse pennsylvania and the pennsylvania coalition against rape. laura and stuart, please stand for a moment so we can recognize you.

going to touch on tonight. the debt, deficit, jobs, the economy, health care, energy. the problem is that we can't reach those issues if the congress, itself, does not work. that's why olympia snowe left. she didn't leave because she was tired of congress or wanted to spend time with family, but left because she said the place didn't function, couldn't get it done, and she was utterly frustrated. we have to try to do something different in order to respond to that challenge, and that's why i'm running for the united states senate as an independent. this makes a difference. this is about solving the problems that the nation faces, and, for example, there's a bill before the senate in september that would have benefited veterans across the country. it was filibusters because the party in the senate that filibustered didn't want the president to have a victory before the election. that's a terrible way to make decisions. the concern should have been for the veterans, not for the politics. >> moderator: governor king, thank you. secretary charlie summers. summers: thank you, i appreci
on a day may not in upstate new york, a big employer in our region. so if we look at our energy future, we have better options than fracturing in upstate new york. the congressman has voted to weaken nuclear safety while promoting the building of a new nuclear plant. i think his record when it comes to safety should give all of our voters great cause. we have tremendous options right now in this region when it comes to renewable and alternative energies that should be the focus of our investment here, given that the evidence showed overwhelmingly shows significant risk from fracturing for the environment and the economy. >> moderator: is it safe here in new york? gibson: but he said about violence on women is untrue. the only vote i had was a chance to vote for her bill. what is told she was slightly and true. what he said about nuclear safety is a flatly untrue. this is a repeated pattern. he said i voted to cut 6000 nuclear safety workers. there's no vote that i voted that way and i regret that this is always the way this candidate proceeds, but we have to be confident that it protects w
in the checking account to keep it open because all of my energies have gone into congress. it is that experience that will help me understand how we can help small businesses look to the future and grow. it is that experience that will help me evaluate policy in washington and see how it will impact small businesses. we can't continue to add complexity and make it more difficult for small businesses to compete. we need to give them a hand up, help them export if we're going to add manufacturing. small businesses are going to lead the way. >> moderator: all right. i'm going to have to stop you. congressman dold, your record is supporting reasonable gun laws. how about supporting a federal ban on assault weapons? do o ld: my opponent says he does not have a business record because he was running for congress. well, he didn't have any clients or revenue in 2010, and in 2010 i was running for congress against dan seals, so it's just disingenuous again. >> moderator: quickly, mr. schneider? schneider: in 2010 i was looking to buy a business. this is an example of you not understanding spend -- entrep
're very grateful for, and i think symbolic of the incredible new energy that's developing in detroit. and i should also say that josh created a company calls eprize in 1999 here in detroit. it's been operating all this time. two weeks ago it sold for a nice exit. [applause] so here's the story of a local company that came from here, went all the way and, you know, he's done real well with that. meanwhile, he's invested in a ton of other companies. so i just want to start by asking you, steve, you know, when i told you about this, you immediately dropped it. why did you think techonomy detroit was a good idea? >> well, i think it's a great idea. i think it's great you're willing to shine a spotlight on detroit. it's not just about detroit, the story about entrepreneurship in america and how it is spread more broadly through the nation than we sometimes realize. obviously, silicon valley is the epicenter of enormous innovation. tremendous companies, it's exciting, it's something we're all proud of, but there are also a lot of companies all across the nation that don't get as much atten
energy makes dirty whether they said on his block tuesday afternoon. james and memphis tennessee democratic call. good morning, james. >> caller: i think global warming start a trend throughout the united states and the world. now we have more floods, tsunami, more than ever before. what can it be accredited to other than being an act of god? it's the second time in less than a year that its flood of areas that have never been flood it was flooded 15 minutes from where i was at, national was flooded last year. it's getting to be a problem in places it hasn't been before. >> host: let's hear from mike in north carolina. what do you think? >> caller: i think it's whether. i think as the articles that you so articulately read stated from both sides of the political aisle there is no definitive conclusion that can be made based on the available data. it's all conjecture. whenever we have these things they are running around with their hair on fire trying to draw some conclusions because we use fossil fuels and this, that and the other but the storms or indirectly caused by them or wh
: remember the energy and commerce committee here in the house. mayor bloomberg talk about the issue of climate change and how after this storm, it is influenced his vote. is climate change going to take on a renewed focus on capitol hill in the wake of hurricane sandy? guest: i would hope so. for those who say that climate change does not exist, i hope they take another look. i have always been an advocate that we needed to address climate change. and that is an important part of the congressional agenda. but as you know, on the republican side of the aisle, there has been a lot of opposition to moving forward to addressing this issue. and i hope now that there's a change in heart, this should not be a partisan issue. on global health and of the military hosted by the center for strategic and international studies. still working on a few technical issues and we expect to get underway in a moment on c-span2.

renewable energy. i think that we have solar power that has to be explored and energy efficiency is really the key. we have to conserve and become more efficient when it comes to our use of energy and fuel, and that will lead to less reliance on gas and while and less hydrocarbons in the atmosphere and ultimately, less money spent. >> moderator: i'm going to go next to charlie and then we will wrap it up. summers: when someone works in the woods or the water, what they want to be able to do is get back and forth to work in an expensive way. i think we have a moral responsibility in this country to look for energy resources here. whether and whether you're talking about oil or gas or coal, nuclear power, we have to have in all of the above strategy. ten years ago in the united states senate, they had a debate and they said if we start drilling now, it will take 10 years before that will becomes in our fuel system. that would've been done and we would've had it here today that was done 10 years ago. we have a responsibility. we should be drilling for oil here in this country and we should be
for declassification and so. i don't mean to say the atomic energy act is the question. what's the answer? atomic energy act of 1954. no. i think it's a large, you know, where i think john and i part company, i don't think is sort of oh, this is how it is. this is how it has been and shall be. and therefore we should accept it. i think there are parts that will be intelligence. potter stewart gave a great speech in 1974, the media is going to want to obtain classified information and the government wants to try to stop them. that's not going to change. we shouldn't be surprised by that. i think we have to have a serious investigation how much less the public knows. about what the government's up to. and what role congress and then through congress the court can play in resituating that. that's where i would start. >> do you think the american public really believes now it doesn't know that much about what going on. seriously, they know about torture, they know about rendition, they know about whatever we want to say about guantanamo, i mean, they know about the predator drone killings they may no

matters important the business comanche from health care to financial services from energy to high-tech they play very prominent role not only in enforcement, but in federal, state, legal and regulatory matters. so, to discuss this issue will have three state leading attorney general's with us today, dug-in slur of maryland, scott prudhoe, and luther strange of alabama. the moderator of the panel is ferber banker who served as attorney general of georgia for 14 years under three different governors. while in office he focused on consumer protection issues and helped push through the mortgage fraud statute, the first of its kind nationally. he is and was a leader in the community. he served as president of the national association from 2006 to 2007 and he's currently a partner in the atlanta office. islamic good morning and thank you so much for that introduction and also for the leadership that you and you're outstanding team are providing around the country, and in particular issues that involve the business community. you have been a positive effect for all of us, so we appreciat
into that. all i wanta say is there are active matter's going on with financial institutions, the energy sector is a concern because of what has happened in other places in the world. but when you look at cyber in terms of infrastructure, we've actually divided the nation's core critical infrastructure in the sector, and we know that there are different types of attacks and methodologies that could cause great damage so even as we see what is going on now, we have to be thinking proactively what could the next wave be and how could it occurred? >> even some that have been the last few days? >> well, you know, there are always nightmare scenarios in any type of disaster preparation. we are going through one now that is another major nightmare in that sense. cyber can be another and has a great potential to be so. that's why we have to really be looking at this issue on their return on investment. that's why we have to be thinking about the deterrence and how the economics work to go back to the general introductory comments and that's why it would be so helpful for the congress to act. >>
running it, but i'm also an energy person as was the middle east person. it takes a long time to train people to know how to run these things, or to work them for fixing but if you just pulled out of the factories you going to have a collapsing economy that will drag it right back into instability. this is going to be a very difficult trade off. with regard to the country splitting up, lebanonization, i would hope that would not happen. if there is a kurdish group in the north that wants to separate out, i can pretty much assure you that turks would not be welcoming of that concept. so that might cause some difficulties. there may be some warlord for a while, the brutality of assad kept things in check for a long time. what would israel gain from a conflict? as far as i can see, it's losing on all sides on this one. it's in a very insecure area. much more than at any time in its history. >> that the organization if you of this region is something which -- from is a lot of people see different patterns. for example, with iraq breakup to a sunni stand, as she is down? and yet you think a

disciplinary action. there hasn't been much energy or resources invested in finding leakers, much less going after them. in light of that longstanding background, it's not crazy to think that the government has in some practical sense, um, actually has kind of blessed "the new york times" to play a certain role within bounds. >> yeah. i mean, i guess the hard part i have is i agree with you at the sociological level, but there's no sociological defense for drake. those guys can't -- >> [inaudible] >> right. they can't come in and say, well, the big shots are doing it, and can it's good for society, but, you know, that's not a defense. >> this is why you're legally vulnerable. but i will say the jury plays some role here at least in espionage act prosecutions in channeling -- i gave the case for why at least in technical terms it's very hard to see why every classified information leak isn't prosecutable. one answer might be that the jury notwithstanding what the laws say or the instructions they get from judges has, um, developed some kind of sense of hypocrisy, sense of fairness and that th

years. there's virtually no new investment in iran's energy or except by iranian firms themselves. international firms have pulled out drones and modeled investors, but also suppliers to basic parts come equipment and services due to not only u.s., but european union, japanese, south korean and other sanctions. the net effect is iran has become a marginal player in the international oil industry is the current trajectory continues, it's on its way to be nearly eliminated as a player in the industry entirely. however, the effect of sanctions on iran's energy site are will make it harder for iran to return to his position in the industry if there is a new year deal and if the international community wants to think he sanctions. the energy sanctions are taking a severe toll on iran's economy. everyone's aware of the plummeting value. i tend to look a little more closely. i try to look at hard currency reserves and it's my understanding those reserves have fallen to about $70 billion from a level of about $105 billion at the end of 2011. treated talked about the proverbial cup of pois

and 70 million people, something like that. japan pursuing nuclear energy because of last year's catastrophe and looking at these huge increases in lng and things like that. and then you look at the united states. you know, we are going to be a very big player for years to be calming for a lot of reasons, especially her economy. i think it is a good time to look at this because we are not in any kind of declining. we're going to be even more important in the coming four years. >> can i just respond to one thing i was thinking about to enter laster talked about, whether we should be optimistic about whether this can be sustained. i actually think the challenges are even greater that richard laid out, but i'm not sick will be able to deal with it. in terms of commitments, we are going to have a double pull. the one is going to be the continued need to be engaged in the middle east and south asia and i agree with that. but if you look at the history of modern american military engagements, what was generally done after periods of intense martial engagement is come home. korean war
of the united states, our country is going to become energy self-sufficient at some point. i mean, i'm not saying it's going to happen tomorrow. but that is going to be a huge game changer. so even on what has been described as our achilles heel for years and years, this notion of this perennially and declining weak u.s. economy, even that's going to be changing. and when you're a country like japan, for example, looking at, you know, off-the-table type demographics where japan which has now gone from 128 million people at its peak now down to -- in our children's lifetime, we're looking at 70 million people, manager like that. when you look at japan that is fore swearing nuclear energy because of last year's catastrophe and looking at these huge increases in lng and things like that, and then you look at the united states, you know, we are going to be a very, very big, big player for years to come for a lot of reasons including and especially our economy. so i think it is really a good time to look at this, because we are not in any kind of declining mode. we're going to be even mor
, that is belied by historical practice because there's several statutes. the atomic energy act is the most prominent where congress has specifically legislated rules for classification, procedures, standard, rules for declassification and so on. i don't mean to say the atomic energy act is the answer to this question. we've all watched reference confidence to which the answer the atomic energy act of making 54. no. but if you think that what i think john and i part company is that i don't think this was sort of all, this is how it is, this is how it always has been, this is how it always shall be and so we should extend the. i think there are parts of always be -- potter stewart did a great speech in 1970 forward said the media is always going to want to try to obtain classified information and the government is was going to want to try to stop them. that's never going to change that we shouldn't be surprised by the. i do think we do not have a star's conversation about how much less the government, the public knows about what the government is up to and what role congress and then through
happened was they were able to refocus a lot of that mental energy not on the past but the future. and as they started to do that they found ways to process what had happened, and we see the manifestation of some of those symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder actually go down over time. the third and final thing that we need to do for young men and women who have come home and facing this is at the know that this is normal. it is an absolutely normal thing to have an abnormal reaction to an abnormal situation. in the situation of extraordinary violence in difficulty and hardship is absolutely normal to come back and to not want to have somebody stand behind you and not want to be sitting in a restaurant in the middle of up to people. that's in your reaction. one of the things we have to do is make sure that they know they are -- this is a normal place and still let them know that there are many people who have been able and have found ways to work through this. so we have to give them hope by letting them know that this is normal and that they are models, people who have done
the motions, and you lose your energy and your inspiration, and the new faces blur with the old faces. there's something to be said for a professor retiring after 20 years. c-span: what made leo strauss such a favorite of everyone? >> guest: because he cared passionately about his ideas, and he conveyed that passion to his students. he didn't have that many students, but the passion for ideas caused his students, in turn, to really engage in the passionate study of ideas, and they, in turn, encouraged their students to engage in the passionate study of ideas. so in that sense, he was a very great teacher. c-span: of all the 41 essays and the 39-page introduction that you said is the most important part of this, which other essays are you--do you think are the most important in here, the one that captures the essence of what you think? any one in particular? >> guest: you want me to look at the table of contents? c-span: well, we're about running out of time. you know, you have the--the--the section on history and capitalism, the democratic idea, the section about some backward glances: cold
of that mental energy not on the past but on the future because they started to do that they found ways to process what had happened and we see the manifestation of the some of the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder over time. the third and final thing we need to do for the young men that have come home that are facing this is to let them know that this is normal. is an absolutely normal thing to have an abnormal reaction to an abnormal situation. a situation of extraordinary violence and difficulty in hardship it is absolutely normal to come back and to not want to have somebody stand behind you, to not want to be sitting in a restaurant in the middle of lots of people. that's a normal reaction. one of the things we have to do when people come back is make sure that they know that this is a normal and a natural place, and to let them know that there are many people that have been able and found ways to work through this. so we have to give them hope by letting them know that this is normal and that there are models for them for people that have done this successfully and if we

of me that wishes that occupy would have at least devoted more of its energies towards the left wing michael harrington's famous formulation the left wing of the possible and that this party centric of me that that is what we have in this country. and so i think a lot of us hoped they would become the left wing matteo party and poll the democrats to the left the way that he party has told them to the right and that most pleasant happened. i went to occupy oakland a couple times and saw people exclude anyone that worked with the democratic party were the unions. it became a scarlet letter to have worked with the unions than to be an anarchist that wanted to break windows, and at that point i lost some hope but obviously in other cities in tampa, i went to tampa, occupy tampa is working with planned parenthood on reproductive rights issues and that is happening in other cities as well people did get politicized and despite the kind of formal animosity towards the democratic party and organized politics, some people did get swept into the causes and i hope more of that happens. >> as we
attention. the level of energy and interest has gone up enormously, and i think that before all this matter how what comes out. it's much more interesting and exciting and compelling raised all which is good for democracy. >> we are talking about david weston's exit interview. somebody has a question, if you could line up at the microphone it would be helpful. yes, sir. we will start with you. >> understanding your bias toward eurocrat abc, which is great, can you speak to your competition as brian williams and his bunch, scott kelly and his paunch and so for in the cables, of course. >> i am happy to. brian is terrific. he is number one in the evening. he has ended. he has paid his dues. he is a terrific anchor, very strong. they have a great news operation and nbc news. their faltering a little bit in the morning now, but they deserve all the success that they have had. i have enormous admiration for what cbs news is doing. people probably don't know the inside of this, but a longtime executive producer of 60 minutes has taken over as chairman. he as a man named david roads to is the pres
feel the energy building. there's a come plaintiff's exhibit over there of germans v the u.s. they feel like we are faster and innovative. what you're starting to sense is build the confidence they can do it as well. we're seeing more entrepreneurship come out of here. i feel that's detroit and began needs is the big campaign saying you do it. here's all your tools, it's a matter of you deciding yes, yes, i'm going to go and try. >> to put it in context, right. it comes from new zealand. they are literally on the edge of the world. we go on the airplane and flew over here and started the company, you know. michigan and detroit is embedded inside the united states, you know, those resources are literally on your doorstep. there's no excuse not do it. it might not like look a million dollar company. it will turn in to something like that. >> if anybody has any questions. we have microphones here. lineup and i'll call on you. so, you know, one thing that we you touched upon here is the custom runs, right, and people have been talking about a lot about mas customerrization for a long time.
. the way to go through these issues is we have dodd-frank energy 20. ipg 20 there's broad agreement with respect to the derivatives market and it's been reemphasizing recommitted to buy the g20, including the united states over and over again. it's a value clarin, value transparency straight reporting. it's the value of collateral a thing and marketing positions and so forth. so given the very highest level agreement, we were tempter every country's individual regulatory regimes to legislative processes. one of the challenge is frankly the mismatch and timing. dodd-frank was pastor for anywhere in the world. the japanese are the closest behind us and we set about to do as congress has directed us to implement the regulatory regime. regulators are working together extremely well. it's a huge component of our job to try to coordinate and collaborate to the greatest extent possible, understanding we have different underlying legal regimes in different underlying processes. to give you specific examples, chairman gensler from the cftc and i have cohosted to very detailed working session
ahead of iran which is under sanctions. not bad. remember the oil energy issue? good. now, washington complains, washington's been complaining about iraqi support to the assad regime and acquiescence to iranian pressure to do so. and hence, there could be problems in the deliveries of the f-16s, a delay while things sort themselves out. after all, baghdad's violating internationally-imposed sanctions. you all know what that means. yes, right on the mark. so here's the dilemma for maliki and for the united states, what do we do? and, remember, i don't think that maliki, i don't think he's an iranian tool or an american tool or anybody else's. he has his own, he's got his own strategy and his own goals in this game. so what do we do? if, for example, if i were in baghdad making decisions and like maliki i'm interested in building a stronger and effective iraq, i might say to myself, gee, i've got to rethink my policy towards assad. but i don't know if he's thinking that or not, he could be. he's kind of cagey. now, if assad stays in power -- not thinking like maliki, but thinking in gen
